Rocketship!!

This is only the basic stitch to learn, as you do need this for a variety of projects, but when the actual rocketship stitch is posted, you will be so much better off! You may be able to figure out the completed rocketship on your own, but this is a guideline to help you figure out what strand does what.

You will need:

  • as many strands of boondoggle as you want, each strands 6 inches shorter than the last

    Putting Beads In

    Now, this project simply shows how to add beads into square or circle. You can always add beads into other projects, but this is really the only way to add them, beads don’t seem to add well into other projects. If you’re interested in purchasing the little pony beads and you can’t seem to find them anywhere in stores, you can always order them offline.

     

    You will need:

    • Two strands of boondoggle, the same length
    • Your pony beads

    Optional:

    • Keyring

    Wrapped Twist

    I love this boondoggle project a ton. It really just looks so cool. I always use two colors as my base and then add a bright pop on top, for this tutorial, I didn’t. I love when I contradict myself. But regardless, it still looks awesome.

     

     

    You will need:

    • Two strands of boondoggle, the same length, could be the same color but don’t need to be
    • 1 strand of boondoggle, about a half yard longer than the other two.
    • 1 strand of boondoggle, about a foot and a half long–this will be you’re wrapping strand so remember that.

    Optional:

    • Keyring

    Fluted Columns

    While I was told that my sister created this project. She begs to differ. I’m not sure if she did or not, but I am sure of how to do it. It looks complicated but if you just pay attention to what you’re doing, you will have no problems at all. The trickiest part of this project is making sure you don’t accidentaly¬† snag another strand. You can add other strands onto the project too if you want, but this is the basic stitch of it.

    You will need:

    • 4 strands, all the same length
    • 2 strands, 2/3 of a yard longer than the rest.

    Optional:

    • Keyring

    Tornado

    This stitch offers a variety of options as far as how to make it. You can use two colors or four and adding a simple quad stitch every now and then really switches things up. It’s also a great stitch for making a keychain for someone you love!

     

    You will need:

    • four strands all the same length

    Optional:

    • Keyring

    Quad

    A double square basically. There isn’t much of an appeal to the eye with this stitch as it doesn’t do much, but if you want to make the larger circle projects, you need to start with this.

     

    You will need:

    • four strands all the same length

    Optional:

    • Keyring

    Butterfly

    As far as being a boondoggle stitch, it sure is. But this is not one of the typical traditional boondoggle stitches. You need no previous expirence to made this project and it is actually a bit of a pain in the rear end. Its hard to start and end this project as there isn’t much you can do to make it look pretty.

     

    You will need:

    • 2 strands of boondoggle, the same length

    Chain Link!

    Considering I have about seven of these in my collection this seems to be one of my favorite stitches. Probably because this is the biggest gateway stitch there is in the boondoggle world. This is a three part video series but if I had made it into one video…I would’ve had a television show!

     

     

    You will need:

    • 4 strands of boondoggle, roughly all the same length

    The Rest of My Collection

    The rest of my random boondoggle creations. I never really figured out where I should have posted these creations, but here they are now. This was a mashup of the non-categorized items. I could have seperated them even more, but I figured it’d be easier to just leave them all in one. Hope you enjoy!
